How does the 120 day no-activation period under the New gTLD Collision Occurrence Management Plan factor into the Sunrise Period?

Under the New gTLD Collision Occurrence Management Plan, no domain names may be activated in a TLD until 120 days after the Registry Agreement for the TLD is signed. It is possible that a Sunrise Period may commence prior to the expiration of this 120-day period. In this situation, Sunrise Registrations may be registered or allocated to Sunrise Eligible Rights Holders during the Sunrise Period, but cannot be activated until the 120-day period has expired. The same prohibition on activation would also apply to any Qualified Launch Program or Approved Launch Program.
